Glide bass Tutorial (w/ Massive)

August 6, 2019 4 By Kailee Schamberger


hey guys welcome to another tutorial
today I’ll be teaching you how to do gliding bass and one of my last
tutorials I tell you guys how to do pitch bending bass but they do not sound
quite the same so I have to do this one also for this one we’re gonna be using
massive and not contact I’m sure you can use serum to make sure you have a drum
loop already or something I just want to create a little context first obviously
look I guess I could throw it on sampler or something too perfect I don’t usually like to start with drums
first and this is kind of an accident so I’m pretty stoked on this okay so once
you’re ready to do your glide bass you’re gonna want you’re gonna want to
either make an eight away patch or open one I’m gonna open one and edit one I
felt like I might this might become a thing where I’m constantly opening shit
and editing it instead of making my own patches I’ll put all these in there
actually but I really feel like this killer one it’s the kill now in order to set up this patch first
off we’re going to probably want to increase this decay some shorten the
release and that way we have control of it when we let it go you’re gonna want
to set the monophonic trigger legato I might just save the patch like this so
that way you don’t have to edit it and then you’re also gonna go in here and so
in order to do these glides you’re gonna wanna use this this this glide knob here
and if you have a mod wheel you’re gonna want to attach it to that because uh
when you can control that then you can get some some real funky glides so the
way that you play this is gonna be important I think I’m off to set up my
GoPro real quick and record myself playing this so people can get an idea
cuz it’s kind of high play it for this I’m ready let’s do this I’m gonna set up a side chain of Jesus
it sounds a lot better with a lung decay nobody can really hear the glide so
that’s why I have that so it’s the one I’m going to set up a side chain on the
the 808 from the kick okay so let’s sound better I’m gonna make some duplicates here so I
can really dig into us I think it’s a it’s
it’s quite a bit different than playing normal 808 because you’re not just
playing one note you basically got a literally glide you got to literally
glide one note another to another so you’re gonna need at least two fingers
or well too long spreading fingers or two hands to do this all right I was
pretty happy with that so now I’m gonna edit that it makes that better this one dude turned into a glide even
though it should have been so the notes basically gotta overlap so sometimes you
may need to go in there and damn I like this I really like this
space on here the timing between the notes when they
glide will change how it sounds to so it’s not just the glide amount so keep
that in mind when I record the kick drum and the
Ableton from reason so I would do that by in that little Accord button and then
this will record so now that I got that duplicate the shit out of it okay and
then we turn it a night off off the monitoring for the inputs with this and
we might have to do some duplicating of the kick drums in order to or movement
in order to line some of the shit up depend on what we wanna do okay you really want to make sure these
hits line up otherwise you’ll get these two are clashing right here should
always be before in a way they’re just a little bit or they can line up right on
top of each you now we can take a listen to what I have thank you for watching I’ll be learn
something into hopefully about bass glides I heard something similar stay
tuned till next time don’t forget to comment like subscribe all that stuff
and comment some tutorials you want me to do because I actually kind of enjoyed
doing this and I need some more topics
